department at energy that was created when i was a teenager. it was to make the united states energy independent. what has happened with that department over the last 40 years? we look at the expansion of the government and education. when we separated education out of health, education, and welfare. we have spent more money at education at the federal government level, money that could have been used better at the local levels. we have to look at these duplicative programs. we have got to move away from baseline budget to zero-based budget. >> the gao had a study that counted 33 agencies that are doing the same thing. we need to streamline these agencies. seven are focused on businesses and trade. let's streamline them. we have attacked medicare fraud and abuse. we need to continue to do that, in all government agencies. i spent years going into numerous fortune 500 countries -- companies looking for these inefficiencies. i plan using my government to find this week. >> can either of you give me any numbers? the department of energy? >> close to $85 billion. you are looking at a guy

. the second question went straight at the president and said your energy secretary says it is not his job to keep energy prices down, do you think it is his job, and the next thing i know we were arguing about drilling in public lands. i went back and said the question was do you think it is the job of the government, and then they went off on the next public lands thing. then, you have been up so much time in this, that leads to one, two, three less town hall people. i did it a couple of times, as many times i felt i could do it without completely blow in the format. with guns, we went off on something. they started talking about single mothers. >> single mothers and marriage, yes. >> i will say that the format that has evolved is better today than back in the day when it was much more strict. we were told u.s. the question, no follow-up, two minutes, one minute, and i was told to interrupt it they did not. there was a red light and a buzzer. there were restrictions. today, they are given more time to have a conversation, and you learn more that way. come to the debate of every i

afghanistan. and we've neglected, for example, developing our own economy, our own energy sectors, our own education system. and it's very hard for us to project leadership around the world when we're not doing what we need to do here. >> governor romney, i want to hear your response to that, but i would just ask you, would you have stuck with mubarak? >> no, i believe, as the president indicated and said at the time, that i supported his -- his action there. i felt that -- i wish we'd have had a better vision of the future. i wish that, looking back at the beginning of the president's term and even further back than that, that we'd have recognized that there was a growing energy and passion for freedom in that part of the world and that we would have worked more aggressively with our -- our friend and with other friends in the region to have them make the transition towards a more representative form of government such that it didn't explode in the way it did. but once it exploded, i felt the same as the president did, which is these -- these freedom voices in the -- the streets of eg

. we will talk about obamacare and foreign policy and hopefully some energy policy. we will be back in just a moment. >> jim graves is here to rebut that commercial. him and michele bachmann. your opponent just said that you favor all aspects of obamacare and would like to keep it intact. is that true? >> no. there are some good things. we talked about those kids staying in to the program until they are 26 years old. we have talked about these exchanges that will open up the bidding process and let small businesses buy insurance. this is by no means a done. it is a process. the heavy lifting is bending the cost curve. we have not done that yet. >> the coverage is pretty popular. do you want to scrap all of that? >> i want to bring down the cost of health care. obamacare escalated the cost of health care. it is money we do not have. we did not need the government to take over 1/6 of the economy. that is a cost of about $5 billion a year which we can do. that money will go to the states so we can take care of people's needs. the big issue is bringing down the cost. obamacare has escal

health care and energy and pensions. so what do you do when you have these big increases in costs, competition makes it very hard to pass on the costs? you cut other costs. and i think this has put enormous pressure on wages. so i think that's part of what's happening. the other thing that's happened is that is of the scale that can move an economy like this which again you first have to recognize that the movement has occurred and when it occurred. is the spread of information technologies across the economy and which is part of an even larger phenomenon which is the dominance of ideas or intangible assets in the creation of value in the u.s. economy. this is a big development. again, it started -- didn't start in 2000. it came much more to fruition in the last decade where the most important assets of u.s. companies became their intangible assets not their equipment, not their equipment buildings et cetera. and when you looked at what share of the what's called the book value of a company, that is how much of its value could be attributed to its physical assets. you see a sharp
